Halter, Marie Clara nee Schill:

Passed away peacefully with her husband near by on October 4, 2020 at Columbia Forest, at the age of 84. Marie and her husband, Edward Halter, shared 63 beautiful years of marriage. She will be remembered by her four loving children, Karen (Jerome) Freiburger, Connie Arnold, Larry (Wendy) Halter, and Donnie Halter. Marie will be dearly missed by her nine grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Olivia Schill, brothers Jerome (Fernanda), Elmer (Rita), Lawrence (Virginia) and infant brother Francis, and sisters Florence (Victor) Gorel, Doris (Jim) Fischer, Beatrice (Bill) Szasz, and Isobel (Bob) Downes.

Marie was a longtime member of the St. Joseph's Choir and the Catholic Women's League. Together Eddie and Marie sang for weddings in harmony, like they raised their family.

I have many good memories of your mother. She always baked a special cake for the Bake Sales at St Bernadette Grade School. She was so kind and welcoming whenever I came to your home. She had a beautiful voice when singing at church. Take comfort in knowing that she is now singing with the angels.

Thanks Donna, so nice to hear from you at this time. We have been blessed by an angel in the way she lived her life by her example of giving, caring and loving each other in the light of the Lord. She was a good Spouse, Mom, Grandma and Great Gramma. A pillar in our family over the years. Yours sincerely, Karen, Connie, Larry and Donnie Halter
